The Wisconsin Supreme Court is being asked to decide whether the state's ban on gay marriage was properly put to voters.Political science instructor William McConkey claims the referendum illegally put two issues to voters at the same time. A Dane County judge dismissed the20case last year, and McConkey appealed to the District 4 Court of Appeals.That Madison-based court on Thursday asked the Supreme Court to take the case. The appeals court says the case presents several new legal issues that should be decided by the higher court.
